I don't know about you but from my perspective "Daylight savings time" is one big pain in the b***. If they want more daylight hours why not just set the clocks forward once. And leave it at that.

I don't change clocks but will spend time tomorrow checking forums that change time.

I think the idea was ok when businesses were open 9-5 but nowadays they are early to late or 24 hours. Or it's a plot to disrupt the sleep cycle and control the populace...

Hi Junk 2drive

Some states don't have "daylight savings time" right? Is yours one of these? If so, lucky you.

Arizona and Hawaii do not play the silly game.

Matrix forum and some others use server time adjustment and I have to change my profile. The others use GMT and I stay the same.

I agree, I don't like dealing with DST, just stick to one time and that's it...it's easier to deal with for humans and computers

I was perusing Google News the other day and came across an article indicating that Heart Attacks go way up in the Spring when the time changes.

Given the age demographic around here, I hope Matrix doesn't lose any customers!

Spring forward/fall down parties in college (one less hour makes you concentrate your drinking). Good times . . . . good times.

I've been unhappy with daylight savings time since I was a young boy.
